I woke up this morning on my farm outside Bloemfontein awaked by my dogs barking mad to Bloem’s way. I took the torch and saw nothing. While looking out the window for intruders I noticed a very bright star situated “low” over Bloem. I went to the bathroom, on my way back to bed I checked out the window a last time for any intruders, I suddenly noticed something moved, I looked up and this ‘bright star’ was suddenly very higher than 5 minutes earlier.
I stood there and watched it thinking it could be a plane. It started jiggling around from left tot right top to bottom. Small shaking movements. I stood and watched it for at least 10 minutes. I even went to fetch my glasses, thought I was having some kind of eye problem. Yet it remained jiggling.
I then woke up my husband (very unimpressed with me) to come and have a look. When I wanted to show him it wasn’t moving and he told me its a plane and I must get into bed. I lay in bed wondering if I’m insane for seeing this? Yet this morning not on FB or news I can’t see anybody that also saw this. I know what I saw and it moved. It’s not a plane – I grew up near a airport and air force base and know what planes at night look like.
